The Christmas Spirit

I'm not sure why but the Christmas spirit has been elusive to me this year. Could be the lack of snow, watching my Grandma and Grandpa, and my mom struggle so hard with the recent trial they have faced. Could be perhaps that my shoes are too tight, or my head is not screwed on just right, not sure but I was really just not feeling it. So I finally got a little taste of it all when my boys Michael and I decorated the Christmas Tree. Seeing all of the ornaments bunched down low toward the bottom on one or two boughs hearing the excitement in Miles' voice and Issac's joy-full screaching; it just felt like christmas.

I also was blessed to walk in to kickers room to check on him and be reminded of the great blessing we have in having our two wonderful little men who are growing and learning and just so cute. Here is a pic of that night and Michael reading to the boys the following night I am so blessed.

On the adoption front we are still sitting at 27 on the list no girl referrals coming in lately but I am assured that the list will move. I don't want it to move too fast, we need time to prepare, but I would like to see steady movement toward our little girl.

Oh, Merry Christmas! It never ceases to amaze me how much we are all blessed. Your family deserves many many blessings! Good luck and hope there is much continued progress on the adoption. I cannot wait to hear when you get her!
